Color Therapy

Sunday night, cooking diner thinking about what I’m learning about color and wanting a deeper understanding That’s what this blog is about for me – what I am a student of. Unfortunately it’s a lot, but always interesting and I love it!

Moving on, let’s look at the color. Using it for healing goes all the way to the ancient temples of Egypt, the Middle East, and China. In Europe in the 1800s, the great color geniuses, Edwin Babbitt, Rudolph Steiner, and Goethe, began to talk about its wonders. Then came Theo Ginbel, Roland Hunt, and Vickie Wall – to name just a few. Of course, I can’t leave out Dinshah P. Ghadiali who fought hard and timelessly to bring his system of color therapy, Spectrochrome into the mainstream. It hasn’t happened just yet, but I’ll leave you to decide why not when we are surrounded by it and it seems like it couldn’t be a more important part of our lives. The medical and scientific community has finally admitted to the benefits of color therapy: lack of sunlight causes emotional imbalances and we are even beginning to use certain colors in public buildings because experience shows that certain colors elicit various emotions (blue is calming, red is exciting, etc.).

Enough history though! Here are some fun facts to play with (courtesy of Theo Gimbel’s book, Healing with Color)
